We can make the act of creation a selfish or a selfless one.
When we create to make money, to sell things, to promote ourselves, our art or our business, we often stumble because we’re focused on an end result.
When we create with the idea of helping, with openness and generosity, we create authentic work that serves a purpose. Even if that purpose is purely pleasure, if it’s created with a generous spirit it will deliver.
Let’s not get sucked into creating content or art for the sake of our bottom line. Let’s find creative contentment by producing useful, helpful, reliable, supportive, instructional, inspirational things that work.
